Medical first responders are confronted with an increasing number of mass-casualty incidents with a large number of injured persons. The proper evaluation of the situation itself, checking and monitoring the vital status of a large number of victims, and choosing the most appropriate strategy to further proceed with treatments are particular challenges.
MED1stMR develops innovative mixed reality training technology to combine real-world medical simulators with virtual environments to train medical first responders for their challenges.
Increasing probabilities for natural disasters due to climate change, human-made accidents and terrorist threats require the development of innovative technological solutions adapted and implemented to the (cross-sectoral) needs of first responders. For this purpose, the project will develop a new technological solution to better prepare MFRs for a variety of disaster situations.
